    I love how I can now install these drivers without rebooting. Oh, XP, how I don't miss thee.

    It takes something like 2-4 minutes for me to boot into XP and have it usable. It was one of the reasons I started using hibernate. I have a lot of stuff starting when the OS starts and some of them are demanding.

    So do these fix the hack for making nVidia cards work as physx accelerators in ATi systems? If so, quick work!

    Yeah, Microsoft sure does work fast, since these had to go through WHQL certification...

    These are basically the 191.03 betas in WHQL form with some minor additions.

    Compare and contrast:
    DriverVer = 09/19/2009, 8.16.11.9103
    DriverVer = 09/27/2009, 8.16.11.9107
